It Has A Familiar Look

Posted in Politics on January 4th, 2014

A photo by George Roelofson of WTHN showing a long line of Connecticut residents waiting to register their guns and ammunition to avoid the state from declaring their legally purchased property illegal contraband has gone viral and is rightly sending chills down the backs of some gun owners.

It Has A Familiar Look

The unhappy shades of Weimar Germany seems to be haunting Connecticut, warning any and all who can remember that sad period in history of just what such registrations can lead to. Given America’s current economic straits, which also bear some resemblance to the Weimar Republic, and the current Regime’s vilification of certain propertied classes and groups, such warnings may well be such as to be heeded by the wise.

Yep, We’ve Seen Queues Like That Before

History has already given us a stark lesson in how one sort of government mandated queue can easily lead another, worse sort. First it’s the registration and restriction of citizens’ firearms; later it’s possibly the registration of “undesirable” citizens.

Police Beating
The Consequence Of Unchecked Authority

Even if one chooses to deny that “it could happen in America,” it’s very hard to deny that a disarmed and cowed citizenry consolidates power in the form of force in the hands of the State and its enforcers. We certainly don’t need to run afoul of Godwin to warn of where that can lead. US and world history as well as both domestic and international news and currents events should be enough to make it clear that the police, when left unchecked, are as dangerous to society as the criminals they are meant to deal with.

So yes! There’s plenty of reason for Roelofson’s photo to both “go viral” and to strike a chord of fear and worry in the hearts and minds of freedom-loving Americans.

Keeping Schools Safe

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on November 21st, 2013

We all believe in the value and rightness of keeping schools safe. It’s just that Americans and Liberals virulently disagree on how to do this. Americans don’t understand or approve of the Leftists’ policies towards firearms and thing that vaguely resemble firearms.

It’s pointless to list the many, many, many instances of the Liberal run school system punishing children for things that very vaguely resembled firearms or other weapons. The list of their offences is just too long to be provided here.

But let’s take Liberals’ “logic” to the next step…

Some letters are just too scary
The “L” And The “F” Need To Be Banned!

The only reason this isn’t side-splitting, belly-laughing funny is that it’s no more extreme and no more stupid than what the Liberals running American schools are already doing.

Choose Wisely

Posted in Politics, Society on August 13th, 2013

Rape is a significant political point and one that both American and Liberal politicians and activists bring up with regularity. This regularity of use is the only point of commonality between these groups when it comes to anti-rape tips, advice, or proposed policies.

At least the opposing ideologies provide people a choice of methodologies in rape prevention.

Choose wisely when planning a rape
Choose Wisely – Stupidity Can Be Painful

So women should choose wisely in the advice that they accept. Choices have consequences and poor choices result in painful outcomes. Stupidity can and should be painful.

One does, however, have to wonder if the wold-be rapists will also choose wisely and develop a tendency towards attacking Liberal women. Risk aversion is a common thing among criminals of all sort. If so, America might actually derive some benefit from the actions of the animals by proving the stupidity and danger of Liberal ideas.
